Testing Microservices with Mountebank is your guide to the ins and outs of testing microservices with service virtualization. The book offers unique insights into microservices application design and state-of-the-art testing practices that will deepen your microservices skills and improve your applications.

About the Technology

Even if you lab test each service in isolation, it’s challenging—and potentially dangerous—to test a live microservices system that’s changing and growing. Fortunately, you can use Mountebank to “imitate” the components of a distributed microservices application to give you a good approximation of the runtime conditions as you test individual services.
